Mouse Jiggler

Mouse Jiggler is a small application that can fake mouse movements to prevent the screensaver, or another program activated by inactivity, from running. When the "Enable jiggle" checkbox is checked, the program will visibly move the mouse pointer around until it is disabled again. A "Zen mode" can be enabled to jiggle the mouse pointer invisibly.

what do you want me to say, its a mouse jiggler, it works

by tobias kempf on September 6, 2023

This program works well for my purpose. My internet connection kept going idle when my screen saver came on and the mouse jiggler made this go away. I like the Zen mode as well. It was a minor annoyance to have to download .net, but I understand why.

My work computer kept going to sleep and logging me out so I would miss calls when they came in. Keeps my computer unlocked so I don't have to waste time logging in every 2 mins if I have to step away. Game changer.

It is one of my old favorites, but I thought there used to be an option to minimize, so that it doesn't stay on the screen.

the perfect tool for working people

This is great! Very easy to use. No additional software required to use this jiggler.

by Juan on February 13, 2022

It's so easy to use unlike other jigglers which need to be downloaded via runtime making it so complicated and you'll just end up going in circles. This jiggler is the best.

Aaaaaaamazing! Only one that worked. 5 Stars!

by Oodli on September 28, 2021

I like it a lot but when I clicked the green arrow next to "Zen Jiggle" option the screen disappeared and although I can see it's still running I cant se the screen to edit the settings at all.

by Raj on September 21, 2021

Would be great if it didn't keep disappearing off the pc every time the system restarts.

This one is really cool, it got installed in a click, some jigglers were asking for .net to be installed

by Sai on February 16, 2021

Great software it has it's uses

by Sosa on December 20, 2020

Cannot turn it off.

Screensavers Planet: If you've minimized Mouse Jiggler, it's probably sitting in the tray of your Windows task bar, at the bottom right of your screen. Click the mouse icon there to open it (might have the click the upward arrow first), then you can turn it off.

I used to play YouTube on the background to keep the Skype active, but now it doesn't work on Teams, and Teams also does not allow set up away time, which I think is pretty dumb. This tiny exe is pretty efficient and did the work!

Simple but great little utility

by Jeff on August 20, 2020

Great little piece of software. Use it everyday. One of my computers doesn't have the small green "minimize" arrow but not a big deal.

by jrholmstead on August 12, 2020

running on my windows 10 1903 x64 without issue. Just unzip, drag and drop the .exe file in your programs directory, create a shortcut to it on your desktop, then run it. I use it for "work" when i log into a virtual machine to bypass company settings to lockscreen when idle.. very ingenious.

did not work for me, windows-7

by Durgesh on May 30, 2019

Will not work with latest version of Windows 10 (64)

Screensavers Planet: It's still working for us on Windows 10 (64-bit). Feel free to post to the message board if you need help getting Mouse Jiggler to work on your computer.

It's very util ! Only need to click on EnableJiggle and it's work xD

by Kazuto on June 26, 2018

I need more instructions. I need the computer to stay awake to allow alarms to wake me up, but I'm far from a computer nerd. I don't know how to get this on my computer or tell it to run.

by SueDoeNimh on June 17, 2018

It's very effective and useful.
